Emergency Savings Accounts

Most people don’t think about financial emergencies until it’s too late. Be proactive and protect your assets and credit score by starting an emergency savings at DCCU. If you contribute to the 401(k) program at your workplace, you realize the benefit of an out-of-sight, out-of-mind savings account: you don’t even notice the money that isn’t on your paycheck. DCCU wants to help you prepare for the unexpected using those same principles.

Emergency savings accounts at DCCU are funded by automatic deposits of at least $25 per pay period and are for a 12 month term. You’ll benefit from a higher, special rate, no minimum amount to start, and one penalty-free withdrawal allowed.
